In the wake of the news that Captain Marvel is getting her own movie, I see a lot of online comments about reading her stories. They are good lists. I do not dispute them.


One comic I don’t see mentioned is Uncanny X-Men 158. I submit that you need to look at this particular issue to see how good Carol was in the days of yore. The days when I was but a child. We may have only had 36 states then. But Carol was getting the full-court press by Chris Claremont.

Published in 1982, this issue is about a year before she becomes Binary. She has been de-powered by Rogue since August 1981, and she’s hanging out with the X-Men. I read this shortly after it was published, and I would have sworn on a stack of Bazooka Joes that Carol was not only an X-Man, but the team leader. Because she does all this in one comic:

+ She spars with the Starjammers and is only defeated when they literally dogpile her.

+ She helps the team sneak into the Pentagon to hack its files on the team.

+ She dishes on her impressive military background.

+ She literally bumps into her archenemy Rogue and charges her, powers be damned.

+ She sneaks off for the primary mission and fights Rogue’s mom, Mystique.

+ She beats Mystique with a chokehold and hands her to the MPs.

+ She wipes out the Pentagon’s intelligence info on the X-Men and her own civilian and hero identity with a resolve to move forward.

It’s a Carol comic guest-starring the X-Men. Other stuff happens, yeah. Kitty thinks about Peter, and the team fight Rogue (and there’s Storm carrying Wolverine even though his skeleton weighs as much as my house).

But, cheese and crackers, people, this was the first time I had seen Carol Danvers, and she clearly has no powers, and she gets the job done like Big Daddy Kane.

And the shewent into space and became Binary (Uncanny X-Men 164). And then she punched Rogue into outer space (Uncanny X-Men 171) and tells the team that if they help Rogue, she’s outta here. And she’s outta there.

She was cool because she was capable even between super powers, and this comic is her showcase. Comixology has it for $2. Give it a try.


Today is the DAY, digital readers. Megahex by Simon Hanselmann is available. This is normally where’d we make a joke about digitall rolling up a joint to go with your reading but not everyone is as lucky as Washington (where pot is smoke a-freely). SO how ‘bout instead you make some trashcan punch?

Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch. Mogg is her black cat. Their friend, Owl, is an anthropomorphized owl. They hang out a lot with Werewolf Jones. This may sound like a pure stoner comedy, but it transcends the genre: these characters struggle unsuccessfully to come to grips with their depression, drug use, sexuality, poverty, lack of work, lack of ambition, and their complex feelings about each other in ways that have made Megg and Mogg sensations on Hanselmann’s Girl Mountain Tumblr. This is the first collection of Hanselmann’s work, freed from its cumbersome Internet prison, and sure to be one of the most talked about graphic novels of 2014, featuring all of the “classic” Megg and Mogg episodes from the past five years as well as over 70 pages of all-new material.

These 214 joke-soaked pages are yours for only $22.99 so grab your copy of Megahex today on comiXology!  

Simon Hanselmann is the real deal, for sure. He captures that stoner stay-at-home life so accurately that I actually find his comics really depressing and thank god I don’t ever have to hang out with anybody like that ever again.” - Daniel Clowes

Red Sonja on comixology

A trip through my comic book subscriptions…

I only gave Red Sonja a try because @gailsimone as writing it.  Given the cheesecake nature of much Red Sonja artwork and the pop-culture picture of her, I wasn’t interested.  However, as a relatively recent convert to gailsimone's writing, I decided to give it a try with Red Sonja #1.  It was then, and still is, awesome.
